Coconut Shell Activated Carbon

Coconut Shell Activated Carbon is natural and environment friendly. But more importantly, their predominant micropore structure results in higher mechanical strength and hardness properties of the carbon. They are more abrasion resistant than any other type of activated carbons.

Coconut charcoal is less amorphous with crystalline-like structure and therefore have a higher pore volume in the microporous region and lover pore volume in the macro-porous region. The micropores (roughly about 80% of it) gives coconut shell it’s unique property. This makes it best for absorbing impurities that have micropore molecular structure. This is why Coconut Shell Activated Carbon from ROOTS is also best suited for applications such as recovery of precio is also best suited for applications such as recovery of precious metals.

It is also preferred for purifying drinking water where contamination is attributed to organic solvents or disinfection by-products such as THMs. They are highly efficient in removing smaller organic molecules, such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THMs), trichloroethylene (TCE), carbon tetrachloride and MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether) etc. Coconut shell carbon is harder and attrition resistant than coal, lignite and peat-based carbons. This property is significant for applications where attrition, carbon breakage and dust cannot be tolerated. Best examples are gold refining, gas masks and ultrapure water treatment applications.
